2018 Chevrolet Cruze vs 2018 Nissan Sentra near Lansing, IN

2018 Chevrolet Cruze vs 2018 Nissan Sentra near Lansing, IN
2018 Chevrolet Cruze shown above with optional equipment. 

There is a surplus of compact sedans in the market, and it is important to get your hands on one that delivers efficient force and sheer comfort. Pair that with top-notch technology features, and you have a premier driving option at your disposal when you pay us a visit here at Christenson Chevrolet. Don’t believe us? In order to give you a little extra insight, we have put the Cruze against the 2018 Nissan Sentra in a comparison for the ages. Once you figure out that the Chevy driving option reigns supreme, make your way down to our location to take the sedan or hatchback options for a test drive. We are located at 9700 Indianapolis Boulevard in Highland, IN

Performance

If you have a packed schedule and need to get to your destination on time, you need something that cranks out some serious verve. The 2018 Cruze achieves just that when you take a peek beneath the hood to marvel at the standard 1.4L turbo engine in the sedan and hatchback models. This powerhouse will definitely get your blood pumping, as it cranks out an impressive 153 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque so you can get to your dinner plans at 3 Floyds Brewpub on time. The Cruze even offers you the option to spring for a diesel powerhouse which will upgrade your torque rating to a massive 240 lb.-ft.! Unfortunately, when it comes to the Sentra, you won’t quite get as much power or customization with the standard 1.8L 4-cylinder model. This powerhouse only climbs to 130 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque which leaves a lot to be desired. 

Cabin

Climb inside the 2018 Cruze and experience some serious comfort to make your time spent inside nothing short of enjoyable. You won’t experience constant aches or pains on those long drives home in because the Chevy driving option provides an available 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat for you to relax in. In the 2018 Sentra, your options become more limited because this vehicle only comes with a 6-way power-adjustment that won’t give you the same flexibility. You won’t have to worry about the kids in back invading each other’s space because the Cruze comes with a spacious 51.9 inches of rear hip room, while you will only achieve 50.1 inches in the Sentra. You will be cozy up front in the Cruze too, as it comes with 54.9 inches of front shoulder room, while the Sentra holds 54.7 inches. 

Technology

Bringing everything full circle are the technology advancements in the Cruze that make your experience inside something to enjoy. Are you a fan of live music? Then you will certainly enjoy the Chevy’s 9-speaker Bose® sound system to motivate your favorite tunes. When you choose the Sentra, you will have a lesser 8-speaker setup. You won’t have to create a large dent in your phone bill when you choose the Cruze because you can equip this ride with a 4G LTE and a Wi-Fi® hotspot1. When you opt for the Sentra, this feature simply won’t be available. 

When it comes to the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze vs 2018 Nissan Sentra near Lansing, IN, the choice is clear. Give us at Christenson Chevrolet a quick phone call at 219-924-3344 to schedule a test drive. We look forward to your visit!

Great customer service! Improved my day after trying to go to work then discovering a flat tire. The service rep Marty was really nice and helpful, which that's not always the case in my experience in other service depots. Keep up the great work!

Kyle hooked me and my family up. We definitely will be going back when we decide to get our other car. Do not go to anybody else because they're not going to treat you like Kyle. "TRUST ME"! I was getting ready to leave because of the cold demeanor that the other salesmen had and then I met Kyle and it was like going from "car hell" to "car heaven"! Really!

Enjoyable Experience

The young lady who assisted with scheduling my appointment was courteous and informative. On the day of my appointment from the moment I drove into service center I was greeted and Jim the representative who interacted me was thorough in explaining what to expect. He also checked if there were any other maintenance needs needed for my vehicle. I never felt pressured but was given options. Jim went above and beyond my expectations. I would definitely seek him out for my next service visit.

Barb is amazing!

AWESOME-SAUCE! Where to start? Aaron Shaps should be known as Christenson Chevrolet's Salesman of the Year for selling us two brand new vehicles within less than 2 months! He certainly deserves an award! He is trustworthy. I didn't fee pressured during any portion of my purchase of a 2018 Chevy Silverado. He made everything quick & painless and actually pretty easy. His communications were quick & clear. He played no games. Everyone in the dealership was professional and polite and attentive to my needs. Aaron went above & beyond to locate my new truck. He even stayed after hours to help with the delivery. I would go no where else to buy a new vehicle and would highly recommend this establishment. THANK YOU, AARON & THE CHRISTENSON TEAM!

Thanks to Justin Nooner, and the Christensen Chevrolet team, I now have a beautiful new 2018 Traverse High Country! Justin found exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t be more pleased. It has been ten years since I have had a new car, so I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with all the “bells and whistles” on this car, but Justin has given me a few “training” sessions... plus answers my questions via phone and text as well. You rock, Justin... thanks for your patience while sharing your expertise!

After wrecking my vehicle on I-65 during a snowstorm, Sunday, February 4th, my husband and I found ourselves in the market for a new one. I researched what type of vehicles I wanted and decided on a Traverse, but had some "must have" criteria. I looked at dealerships across Northwest Indiana and found what I was looking for at Christenson. Having had purchased my very 1st car from them back in 2003, I was confident they would be able to work with us. While the original person I was supposed to meet with was unable to on the day my husband and I went it, Justin Nooner stepped-up to the plate and our purchasing experience was awesome! We came home with a brand new 2018 AWD Traverse on Monday, February 12 and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Justin and the rest of the Christenson Team for everything you've done and will do in the future. Definitely will buy from them again when we're ready for another new vehicle.

By far the best looking showroom for Chevrolet in the area. The body shop has done excellent work for me on many occasions. They do outstanding work. One time I had to give them a car to re- work the bodywork another shop had done and fixed it with no problem. The next time I am looking.for a new Chevy I will definitely be going back to give them my consideration.

Da Juan Hunter a week ago-Customer service here is ALWAYS amazing!!!! Randy in service and Dave in parts are the absolute best! I have to add to this review. I had recently been having some issues with my traction control light coming on and going off. I took it to several dealerships in NYC and every place said the car was fine. I was finally able to bring my car back to Indiana and of course brought it to Christenson Chevrolet. Working with Anthony, and the amazing technicians they found the problem. As it turns out, it was my transmission control module. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t be able to find my issue. These guys are truly my heros! Thank you so much!!!

Just bought my second truck from Christenson a 2017 silverado midnight edition. My salesman Justin was great. He took the time to make sure I was completely satisfied and he even stayed over 3 1/2 hours after his shift was over to make sure I was taken great care of. This dealership really knows how to treat their customers. Thanks guys.
